»The great thing about software is that it’s logic-based, but there are 100 different ways to approach it,« says Miria Emma Clausen Knudsen, who is a scrum master at Netcompany and is currently building the new Jobnet. There are hundreds of correct ways to do this. The blend of black and white and artistic elements is something Miria has embraced since childhood.
Computers and Art from Childhood
Miria grew up in Trørød near Vedbæk. Their father worked in communication, and their mother was a music school principal. Miria played a flute in a quartet for 13 years, and when they weren’t doing that, they sat in front of a computer.
»My father always had the latest fancy computer. When it got too old, my brother got it, and when my brother replaced his, I got the old one. All three of us would play Call of Duty 2 together. I also built a super-Nintendo emulator so I could play super-Nintendo on my mother’s computer,« Miria explains.
Miria could have taken two paths: music or engineering, and it was not obvious that one way was better than the other. They took programming at the C-level in high school and “hated” it. But when they later studied physics at the University, their friend posed them a good question.
»’What if we switch to software? We’re going to do the same thing in the end, we’ll just get a better starting salary.’«
